A Morning at the Jamestown Audubon

April 6, 2007 at 3:26 pm (Uncategorized)

I had the day off of work for Good Friday.  Since we have a foot of snow on the ground right now, we decided to take Noah and his cousins over to the Audubon to get out of the house.  The Jamestown Audubon is a second home for us most of the summer.  Karen & I always enjoy walking the trails.  We have also met many new friends who share our interest in nature and photography.  I am active in their photo club and also do a lot of my dragonfly research there.  On the first floor of the building they have a wonderful area to look at the bird feeders that they maintain.  The diversity of birds and the ability to get close makes this a great place to do a little indoor photography out of the cold.  Today seemed to draw in all sorts of birds.  I was most impressed with the variety of woodpeckers that I got to see.  In addition to the regular Downy and Hairy woodpeckers, we also saw a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and a Red-bellied Woodpecker.  This was the first time I was able to photograph these two species.  We were also treated with a nice view of four Whitetail Deer that came for a quick meal.  They were spooked almost as soon as we were able to see them, but the kids sure were excited.  We were also treated to the regular Cardinals, Blue-jays, and LBBs (little brown birds).  Someday I will know my birds as well as dragonflies, but that day is still a ways off.  Until then enjoy these pictures!

    P.S. It was so great to have your family at the Center on last Friday. The place just came alive… like your bird feeders with the snow. I wish more people knew what a wonderful time they could have if they came down to spend a day with us.
